Opening Panel

Panel Overview

This plenary panel will explore the role of the humanities in addressing three contemporary challenges: gene editing, climate change, and migrant/refugee crises. Each of the panelists is actively engaged in work to address one of these challenges and will reflect on the crucial role the humanities plays in their efforts. In addition, the panel as a whole will work towards developing broader claims about the importance of the humanities to addressing these social, cultural, and scientific challenges.
